Photographer's Note

Mountain Hut : In this shot you can see a very simple hut at a height of 14000 feet near Baba Mandir in East Sikkim.This place is very close to the Indo-China Border and located in a hard to live terrain.Baba Mandir is a temple in memory of a serviceman of the Indian Army.
According to legend, Major Harbhajan Singh drowned in a glacier following the 1962 Sino-Indian War in 1968 while escorting a column of mules to a remote outpost.He later, through a dream, instructed one of his colleagues to build and maintain a shrine after him.The Baba Mandir is a popular tourist spot in this region.
